  1. I feel like I have been luckier than most with getting the sequels that I want, but here are a few that are still on the waiting list. Vanquish 2 - The original is mechanically one of the best and most exciting third person shooters of all time. Would love to see Platinum get another crack at it with updated hardware. Fallout: New Vegas 2 - The Outer Worlds is fine, but nothing compares to open world of the Mojave Desert. Now that Obsidian is owned by Microsoft, that kind of puts the final nail in this coffin. Not to mention that Bethesda has different ideas as to what Fallout should be nowadays. inFamous 3 -
  2. Solid Gold, Baby! Earn any 70 Gold Medals on Missions, Strangers and Freaks. Stumbled into this guy last night. I thought the count for the trophy was 75 gold medals, not just 70. Was a nice surprise to say the least. Just have some stunt jumps, bridges and a little cleanup to do now. Then onto multiplayer (kill me).
  3. Hard drives. Imagine the profit trophy hunters could make off of memory cards though hahaha. Sweating mayonnaise or not being able to tell the difference between a muffin and a baby.
  4. For me, its Metal Gear Solid V. My disappointment stems 100% from the story. I always really enjoyed Kojima's cutscenes. I understand why the story was relegated to audio tapes, but it just felt like so much of what makes Metal Gear Solid was lost. This severely hurt the memorability of many of the characters. Skull Face was the weakest main villain in the series, all of the side characters that did not exist before are terrible and barely speak, and the returning characters all feel like they've had their personalities replaced with monotone sticks in the mud. The final 'twist' is also bad and annoying because it has massive implications for the previous games. The game was clearly released before Kojima was ready, and that's a shame. I would have loved to see if an extra chapter could have rounded things out a bit more. The gameplay was top notch though. No complaints in that department.
  5. Well if you haven't already, you gotta try Super Meat Boy. Its made by the creators of The Binding of Isaac. I think it is one of the best platformers ever made. Be warned though the platinum is notoriously difficult. There is still one trophy keeping me from completion.
  6. You gotta get going on inFamous 2. Such a fun platinum Also my heart broke when I saw your Killzone 2 list
  7. WipEout HD I want to go back and 100% some PS3 games now that I've got the time. Went for one of my all time favorites. The Fury DLC trophies are not nearly as challenging as the base game. Craziest thing that happened to me though was looking at when I got the platinum. August 2011. It blew my mind. I was 14 years old at the time and probably a lot better at this game too. I'm kind of impressed that my 8th grade self was able to get this bad boy. Anyways, the game still holds up remarkably well. The controls are just as tight as ever and the new game modes are a ton of fun. I wish the tournaments mixed up game modes instead of just having eight single races, but that's fine considering the wealth of other things to do in the Fury campaign. Great game, but unfortunately the platinum is no longer unobtainable for new players since the servers have been shut down. Shame
  8. I've got about a month until my first job out of college starts so I want to use this time to go back and clean up the mess that is my trophy collection lol. I'm thinking about picking back up a lot of PS3 games and getting the 100%.

     

    I still really want Super Meat Boy to be my 50th platinum, but Impossible Boy is just the absolute worst. I have nightmares that involve the cotton alley theme playing in the background.

     

    Anyways, if anyone out there wants to try and bang out some UC2 or UC3 multiplayer trophies you should totally add me as a friend.

  9. Speed runners use glitches and exploits to get better times constantly. If it is in the game, it is part of the game in my eyes. Now if you are manually configuring data within the game somehow (ie some kind of hacking) then that is cheating
  10. This Anthem hate train has been fascinating to watch. Nobody's consoles are breaking from a game crash. That doesn't even make sense. This entire past month for this game has been such a strange release. You've got people on one side trying to tear the game down at every opportunity and then people on the other side defending glaring flaws in a project that clearly was not ready to be called anything more than a beta. Nothing is ever allowed to just be average in this industry
  11. I'd actually go with Sackboy For as plain as he is I think that he is the most unique out of the PlayStation mascots. The little guy just emits the word "fun" while all of the others are designed to look badass or cool. It is a shame that Media Molecule is not the power house that they were for PS3. I miss those days Also special shoutout to Kevin Butler who totally counts as a PlayStation mascot. His demeanor and the Dear Playstation ads led the PS3 comeback in 2011
  12. I feel that for sure. There have been so many moments where it felt like I was wasting time that could have been spent doing something else whenever I continuously lose at a game for hours. So lately, for me, I just only try to trophy hunt when I know that I have the rest of my life in some sort of order lol. I get way more stressed out trophy hunting when there are other things in my life that need addressed, and all that time going for an UR could have been spent fixing those things. But yeah going for any UR is stressful. That's why they are UR. Not a lot of people want to do it.
  13. I've got a little more free time time so I'm going to try to get back into trophy hunting these next couple of months. Haven't gotten to sit down and really put some good time into the PS4 until the past week or so. Luckily my roommate has been racking up some time in Apex Legends so the Plus subscription is being put to good use. Anyways I finally manned up and got this bad boy

    Zombie Boy :gold: was a strange one. Don't get me wrong, it is ridiculously challenging, but I always knew I would achieve it as opposed to Bloot Clot Boy and Demon Boy where I thought it would never happen. Maybe this means I am finally somewhat good at the game. I'm sure that Cotton Alley will shove that silly little idea right out of my head.

     

    Two more trophies to go.......

      The best of luck to you on the Cotton Alley levels.

       

      I'm still on those myself.

      @Spaz Thanks you should totally go for Girl Boy soon! I actually feel like it is easier than Zombie Boy. Impossible Boy is going to be another story

  14. Little update on the Super Meat Boy platinum.....

     

    I've now earned Demon Boy :gold: and Maggot Boy :silver:

     

    Three more no death runs to go, but these are the ones that really put you to the test. Zombie Boy is next. I'd like to have the plat before the start of the new year, so we'll see how long this road goes lmao

    1. UltraRareBoy

      UltraRareBoy

      @UltraRareBoy Thanks! Good luck on impossible boy! Definitely not looking forward to it hahaha

      Zombie Boy was a test of patience. Took me 12 - 13 hours to pull it off.

       

      Girl Boy shouldn't be too bad, I just need to get off my lazy ass and get it. Impossible Boy is definitely troublesome.

       

      I wish you all the luck and skill you need for that final no death run.

  15. Didn't know we had so many podcasters here! My friend and I do one, but its not gaming related. More so daily life/comedy so might not be what you're looking for, but if you want to mix it up a bit look up Two Guys At Night or just go to http://twoguysatnight.com. We're on pretty much everything. Haven't made an episode in a month because of end of the semester workloads, but there's 16 episodes. @cronocyde Do you put you put up any audio only verisons?
